I am going to be posting about my Seymour and Sevan here. They are very unique and only a couple others alive that are like them. This, we believe, is due to the genes that were bred together.

These two were not intentionally bred for, they are just a product of a pairing I had.

I will not be breeding that pair any longer and after testing has been done (first round anyway) it has been recommended for us (those who breed in general) not to breed black face lines to black face lines unless the are a MINIMUM of EIGHT generations out.

We will be breeding these little ones to gliders that do NOT have any black face in their lineage to see if it is something that can be bred out or not.

These are photos that were just taken today.
Seymour (the male) weighs 71g and Sevan (the female) weighs 66g

Well, they aren't the most attractive little ones, are they? I can understand the decision made about further breeding. Who could have guessed this would happen?

In the first three pictures, it looks like the colors are just inverted; interesting appearence.

They're both still cute, I hope they remain healthy & you're breeding goals are successful.

They are believed to have the rex coat/double rex coat gene.

This is how folks produce the hairless animals. By breeding two double rex coat gene animals together.

Not something I would want with a glider.

They look different for sure. Seymour is actually a cute little guy and although Sevan is not the cutest, I am thankful they are both very healthy.

I cannot imagine anyone wanting to purposely breed for hairless gliders shakehead But you know if someone thinks they can do it and for major $$$, they will surely try worried
